Natural Woven Shopping Basket
These beautifully and thoughtfully handwoven baskets are ethically and sustainably handwoven in Northern Ghana. These carry-handle market baskets come in three sweet sizes and are produced in the Bolgatanga area of Ghana. All are made from veta vera grass which grows wild locally and is incredibly robust when woven - a stylish and sustainable alternative to plastic.
Most of the weavers who produce these woven basket bags are men, having been taught the art of basket weaving from their own mothers and fathers. Most of these men are farmers first and foremost, but the dry seasons make it increasingly difficult to make a reliable income from the land. Basket weaving brings these people the opportunity to earn a flexible second income. Please note, as this is a handmade product, dimensions & colour may vary from those shown in the photographs.
